IMPORTANT : DUE TO COVID-19 ALL VOUCHERS HAVE HAD THEIR EXPIRY DATE EXTENDED BY 12 MONTHS TO COVER NEXT SEASON AS WELL.
*PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING*: Due to COVID-19 We have had to reduce the number of courses we run. We will also ask all participants to wear face masks (These will not be provided) as we will be closer than 2m for a prolonged time, the instructor will not be wearing a mask as it will make communicating instructions and information difficult through the bee suit. Unfortunately we will not be able to have our initial talk and drink in the restaurant at Planters so this will take place out by the bees, we will therefore be unable to provide refreshments.
If you have been given or have purchased a voucher for a beekeeping experience please book using the form at the bottom of this page, being sure to include your voucher number which can be found at the top right of your voucher. Please note if you have not got a voucher then you will be unable to book this event, vouchers can be purchased here.
The experience should last between one and two hours.
